Once you have decided on a branching scenario approach, how do you get started? This is my process for working with SMEs to prepare.

Instead of boring “click next” compliance training, engage learners and give them a reason to seek out and understand the policies.
What if you could create compliance training that learners actually cared about? Use a worst case scenario to show the “why” behind the rules.
In instructional design, we have both broad and deep skills. We have broad skills across a range of domains, plus a few deep skills as specialties.
